Most likely not the shifter, mine did it with the stock shifter, installed MGW hoping it would help, awesome shifter, but didn't help or hurt the grinding. More here

the grinding could be a messed up clutch disc which is usually a grindin sound in most cases and those that cant get into another gear is prob a synchronizer

Mine started doing this between around 4500 miles. I also noticed some noise when when pushing the clutch in especially at low speed, like the clutch wasn't fully disengaging. I took a look at my clutch fluid and it was black. I suctioned the black stuff out and replaced with GM Super DOT4 fluid and I have not had any problems since and the noise when pushing in the clutch is gone.

My 2011 SS grinds from 1st to 2nd under hard acceleration it has 400 miles on it and was wondering if it has anything to do with the skipshift...if I unhook it does it make the grinding go away, I had a 95 camaro with it unhooked and it never had a problem with grinding. any help out there?

Okay, well if changing fluids and a short shifter doesn't work... has anyone tried a clutch/FW/tob swap? Did it improve?

I have an update.... first off, i noticed that mine will do the grinding going from 1st to 2nd, using about 1/2 gas pedal and shifting at 3500 rpm. if you shift quickly, it will grind every time.

It is so important that everyone on this page and on this site that are having this problem to go to your dealer and report the problem. I have been working with my dealer and with GM and they say this is the first they have heard of this problem.
If you are having this problem, then report it.

The Dodges that are running the TR6060's have the same issues we have. It's not only a GM problem.

If you are having this problem, then report it.

Been there done that, the most common excuse I hear is "operating as designed" "can't duplicate the customers concern" and when I have asked to take a tech for a ride to duplicate the problem the answer has always been no followed by a B.S. reason why! So I guess I have to wait for this P.O.S. to explode before anything is fixed, truly love the car but the quality of it totally SUCKS! I've had nothing but problem after problem, and for those that got a good one I'm very happy you don't have to go through the crap me and some others have, been fighting since April 2010 to get my problems resolved and looks like no end in sight, and these stupid a$$, non-American customer care people that can barely speak english are no help at all either, sorry just pisses me off!

I think people should take a closer look at what you found with your car... the clutch not disengaging was/is a common problem with 03/04 Cobras (along with the high rpm shift and grind) so most owners eventually go with an aftermarket adjustment setup.

Ok, so get this.... I took the car to the dealer, and I described how it grinds from 1st to 2nd at 3500 rpms, and about 1/4 gas pedal. he took it for a drive and shifted at about 1500 to 2000 rpms. Can you believe that he had the nerve to tell me that I should not be shifting at 3500 rpms, and that was beating on the car. I explained that the redline on this car was 6500. He also told me that I shift too fast and I should be pausing once I have the pedal pressed in before I move the stick shift. I also pointed out to him that he stalled it out 3 times before leaving the parking lot, and that he was the one who is not familiar with driving a stick shift. I told him it is a camaro, not a kia and that 3500 rpm is not considered high. While he was driving it, it also did the grinding. He told me it was because he had accidentally shifted improperly. He told me that it's not a race car and the problem with the grinding is user error. He said I'm not driving it properly. I told him I don't recall seeing anywhere in the GM manual that says you have to pause inbetween shifts, or that GM recommends shifting at 2000 rpm.
Un F*&%ing believable! I think people like him should not be working for gm and should not be representing them.

This kind of stuff just gets my blood boiling! People like him should not be doing a customer service job because he obviously isn't a good listener! He has a predetermined opinion about everyone that we are all just morons that don't know anything about a car! When I brought mine in for notchy 3rd gear, for the 3rd time, I described the problem with my "service advisor" and I had to clearify 4 times as he was writing up the work order! Then he finally agreed to a test drive and I soon learned that HE had no clue! He admitted being a "rooky" at driving a "stick" and he was short shifting and just being a ***** shifting. Of course he only "felt it maybe 1 time but it may have been my shifting"...WTF! At least he did make a note of it but the technician reported "no trouble found"! Hire some proffessionals to be service advisors rather than some punk off the streets! This is just an insult to our intelligence! These are real problems that we're experiencing, what's i gonna take to get GM to listen???

I have something along these lines. It doesn't grind usually when i put it into second but it is sometimes difficult to put it into second. sometimes it doesn't go in because its being difficult and then it grinds but as soon as i muscle it into 2nd it doesn't grind.

Also, third is pretty notchy and not smooth to shift into.

Just gotta love the B.S. don't ya! I was told anything over 60mph was aggressive, so what do you do when the speed limit is 70mph, get run over? I was also told that Im not suppose to downshift to 1st(grinds) till I completely stop! Well thats funny seeing how my manual says 40mph and under, don't GM teach these people anything?
